Lakme absolute perfect radiance (skin lightening day creme)

Product review –

Price- 360 INR (5.15usd)

Quantity -50gm

Packaging

it comes in nice silvery looking container that looks pretty on the makeup vanity looks quite high end.

It has a screw on cap.

Ingredients

Not mentioned on the bottle but might be written on the cardboard box it comes with. I bought the day creme and night creme in a set and a face massager came along free with this.

My experience

The first thing that i noticed when i started using this product is that it smells just like boroplus or fair and lovely.

It has spf 20++ so it does the job of sunscreen as well as moisturizer. It does not feel heavy on the skin. It is good for combination to oily skin.

Thumbs. Up –

*works nice as daycream and primer.

*a bit pricey for the amount of product.

*available easier online than offline.

Thumbs down –

*feels a bit whitish on skin but on massaging it in it fades.

*smell might bother some of you.

Will i purchase it again?

I don’t think so.. I would like to try some other alternatives. I don’t have much to say about this product but i do not like it much.

Rating – 6/10.

White tone face powder

Product review –

Price – 75 INR (1.07usd)

Quantity – 50gm

Packaging

Packaging is simple with a plastic oval bottle with flip on cap.

Ingredients –

My experience –

It is fine milled powder. It is one of those kind of products that shows that being fair is the only way to make a woman look beautiful i guess… Because it comes in only one shade…and it feels like you have a white case on your skin after applying it.

It smells nice… But smells fades gradually

It is good for application on other body parts apart from face or if you are into Halloween makeup then.

Its a product by vini cosmetics. I feel like this drugstore brand in particular does not do well so much but still women who lean towards making their skin look white pasty powdery likes buying this product.

I have a wheatish skin tone and i don’t like the look of this product on my skin. . I’m sure it will make a fairer skin tone more fair…

Thumbs up-

*affordable

*available online and offline.

*can be used as a talc.

Thumbs down-

*makes your face look white.

*can used on other body parts other than face.

Will i purchase it again?

I got it in a beauty bag as a gift. .. I have not purchased even this one. I felt like i should review it. Not at all worth purchasing.

Lakme peach milk moisturiser

Product review –

Price – 110 INR(1.57usd)

Quantity – 60ml

Packaging

Comes in a variety of different plastic packaging.. It comes in a cap and container type package as well as this plastic bottle with a flip cap.

My experience

Best for people with combination to oily skin.it can used as a primer. The best part is.. It dries down without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin.

The bottle (smaller ones) are travel friendly too.. but might spill on extremely hot weather.

The consistency of the cream is quite light and thin and on blending it feels moisturizing on the skin.

It smells quite nice and makes you feel fresh.Smell gradually fades in few minutes.

My experience –

One of my favorite lip shade. Very kylie jennerish plum shade.

Looks very beautiful plum shade on dusky and darker skin tones..might appear pinkish on fairer people.

It feels very lightweight and comfortable.it dries to a very matte finish and does not feels sticky.

It covers pigmentation on my lips very well and gives a very nice opaque shade. It has a very nice staying power of 6-7 hour. Moreover, it’s waterproof too.

I love very it on a day to day basis as it is a wearable shade, not too flashy not to dull.

Sivanna waterproof mascara

Product review –

Price – 299 INR(4.28usd)

(on a discount from amazon). Earlier it was sold by sivanna cosmetic when i bought it but know it is sold under “generic”.

Quality – 8ml

Packaging-this is how the cardboard packaging looks like

Ingredients –

My experience –

It stays on for a nice 4 hours.. And i like how it makes my lashes look spidery..

Its definitely gives length to your lashes (a nice dupe for maybelline hypercurl waterproof mascara).

The thing i don’t like about this is the chipping off that happens after 4 to 5 hours.

It does feel slight heavy on the eyelashes.

It definitely waterproof as it says on the packaging and for the price it’s quite nice for a drugstore mascara.

And i really like the applicator.

Blue heaven shingarika sindoor (powder sindoor)

Product review-

Price – 20 INR (0.29USD)

Quantity – 25gm

Ingredients-not mentioned on the packet

Packaging- sturdy package… Good for the price. it comes in two colour – maroon and red. I have the maroon one.it also has a nice mirror on the cap for easy application.

My experience :

In comparison to the local powder sindoor brands… Blue heaven can be trusted because it’s a pretty nice drugstore brand emerging in india.

I have used this sindoor and even repurchased it because of the fact that it does not feel heavy on application.

Moreover, it comes with an applicator which helps in application of sindoor much easier and less messy.

I prefer using powder sindoor (because its a tradition in india) but most quality sindoor in the market comes in liquid or wax form like lakme ones.

Thumbs up-

*Portable and travel friendly.

*Easy application.

*Comes in two colours-red and maroon.

*Nice pigmentation.

*Available only in local stores in india.

*Affordable.

Thumbs down-

*Not available online.

Will i repurchase it?

I would love to repurchase it. And i already have.

My experience-

These lipsticks come in a set of six (at Amazon) containing brown ,nudes ,pink and red shade.these shades are even sold separately on ebay.

These lipstick have “Numbers” mentioned on it for different shades…instead of names.

The nude Shades in this set are “Kylie Jennerish” shades 🙂

These are incredibly smooth powdery matte lipstick…Pigmentation is really good…so good that it won’t come off even on waashing.Only makeup removers or oil can remove it…Hence kissproof i guess 😛 as the name says.

But it might feel dry for people with dry lips.

when applied over any other lipstick it makes it look matte.

these act as great lipliner for liquid lipstick…especially shade 5 and shade 9 which helps in concealing dark pigmentation on lips.
